    wine update + WoW

    So recently I have updated Wine, and now when i run World of Warcraft, and alt tab to switch to a different window, it switches resolution twice, and then WoW no longer has sound, untill i restart it.

    here is the output. Maybe yall can make some sense of it.

    Code:
    fixme:win:EnumDisplayDevicesW ((null),0,0x33daa4,0x00000000), stub!
    fixme:wgl:X11DRV_wglQueryPbufferARB unsupported WGL_PBUFFER_LOST_ARB (need glXSelectEvent/GLX_DAMAGED work)
    fixme:wgl:X11DRV_wglQueryPbufferARB unsupported WGL_PBUFFER_LOST_ARB (need glXSelectEvent/GLX_DAMAGED work)
    fixme:wgl:X11DRV_wglQueryPbufferARB unsupported WGL_PBUFFER_LOST_ARB (need glXSelectEvent/GLX_DAMAGED work)
    fixme:system:SystemParametersInfoW Unimplemented action: 113 (SPI_SETMOUSESPEED)

    It's a theme, and this is linux, change it if you don't like it.

    Those are all developer debug messages (they aren't really errors) and none of them have anything to do with sound. I think the problem is the ALT-TAB, you shouldn't do that when playing games through Wine, they don't deal with it well.

    Solution to this problem would be pretty much the following:

    1. Run WoW in windowed mode.
    2. Set WoW to be maximized in windowed mode.

    Saves all those pesky resolution changes that are causing you grief.

    To this day I believe the only way to change display setting is WoW is in D3D mode or manually in the config.wtf file.

    Re: wine update + WoW

    Yes i have had the same problem... But since there was an nvidia driver update i wasnt sure which was to blame.

    I run dual monitor setup - with wow in native res - same as desktop...

    i used to be able to mouse out to the other desktop and surf web etc etc without anything happening - since the updates of wine and nvidia it changes res twice and kills sound...

    Re: wine update + WoW

    btw - to roll back the wine version...

    do u just uninstall via dpkg then re-install the old one (i seem to remember the update cache is in something like /var/apt/cache? and there has been at least 2 updates of wine in the last few weeks so it should be there) or is there a GUI for this that i havent seen yet?

    Just uninstall either through Synaptic or "sudo apt-get remove wine" in the terminal. Then download and install an older package from the Wine repositories:

    If you look into the wine appdb entry for WoW, you'll see that the bug has already been created in the wine bugzilla: http://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=9087. You'll also see some people suggest other workarounds than the 'windowed mode' suggestion.

    Re: wine update + WoW

    Thanx guys.

    To be honest i will still roll back to the previous version though - cause as well as sound stopping the machine becomes unresponsive for a sec whenever i mouse out to the other x-session...

    This never used to happen - i love the seamless integration of the 2 sessions running.

    There is a quick and easy fix for the sound issue:
    1. Go to WoW sound options.
    2. Check the box in the lower left that says "Enable Sound in Background".
    3. You may have to restart WoW.

    Now you can alt+tab and you won't loose your sound.
